Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
Doggedly, or rather wolfishly, the film doesn't go in for camp or mirth, at least until its misjudged and semi-endless wolf-on-wolf climax.

What have you done to The Wolfman, Hollywood? It’s got no kick to it. No fun either. And no real scares, which is more unforgivable.

The Wolfman feels like a film reedited and reworked so many times it has lost all narrative rhythm and suspense.

WOLFMAN - nothing to howl about. (Based on advance press preview on Wed. Feb. 10, 2010)

WOLFMAN is a disjointed badly edited albeit high-quality production that was approximately 1hr 45mins in length - and not 2hr 5min as incorrectly posted by Fandango. Other than the few 'action'...

The Wolfman brings nothing new to the table

The Wolfman was just a a throwback to the 1940's film that didn't bring anything new to the genre of horror. All the actors played one-dimensional characters who didn't wow us or shine bright. The...
